Young Social Innovators

Young Social Innovators:

Young Social Innovators (YSI) is a dynamic not for profit education charity. We want to give everybody an opportunity to use their creativity to respond to social issues and contribute to building a fairer, more caring and equal society. To achieve this, we empower and support young people to realise their potential as social innovators, giving them the skills and confidence to tackle the social issues facing them, their communities and wider society

Thousands of young people take on the YSI Challenge each year to tackle a social issue that they feel passionately about and we provide a busy schedule of programmes for young people and educators as well as organising regional and national events every year.

With support from our funders, Tomar Trust and the Department of Education Dormant Accounts Fund, YSI is now targeting 6 regions in Ireland (West Cork/Kerry, Limerick/Clare/North Tipperary, East Cork/Cork City/Waterford/South Tipperary, Kildare/Wicklow/South Dublin, Dublin City, North Dublin/Meath/Louth) in Phase 1 of a new initiative which will enable increasing numbers of young people and schools, to engage in youth led social innovation in local areas. In these regions, literally thousands more young people will be supported to turn their ideas into action.

This is an exciting initiative, which promises to have real impact on both young people’s education while empowering local populations to address the many challenges facing them in a fast changing world.
